I AM SUMMER ALISABETH

Favorite Summer Dress Finds

Wedding Wednesday

June 26, 2019

If you don’t know this already, my favorite thing to wear are dresses! I love them…they’re so comfy, so summery, and they look so nice with hardly any effort! I wear them almost everywhere, and I wear them more than I do jeans. With a dress, I can throw any outfit together in 10 seconds! I’ve spent too many hours scouring the internet for the best places to find dresses, and today, I’ve gathered a list of my favorites for you! I absolutely love when my brides bring a beautiful maxi dress of some sort to their engagement session because I know that I can easily make magic happen with those kinds of dresses! They make photos look so soft, so romantic, so classy, and soooooo dreamy. I’ve already blogged about what to wear to your engagement session, and I’ve also shared a post with my favorite places to find bridesmaid dresses! But I think this will be just as helpful as those because finding the perfect engagement session dress is harder than you’d think! There’s so many options and so many places to look, so I’ve made it easier for you! When I’m shooting weddings, I love wearing midi or maxi dresses with short sleeves because I am able to move freely in them, they aren’t hot, and I can still be modest and professional! I’ve made a list of some of my favorite shops, and I’ve also included links to three dresses from each one to give you an idea of what style of dresses they have!
